Thank you for your interest in our sixth form. This page contains important information to help you with your application. Please start by clicking on the link below to view our prospectus that provides some important general information about our school including the importance of being a faith community and details of our scholarship programme.
Below, you can view the subject option blocks and entry requirements for our courses next year. Most students study 3 courses although in a small number of cases, some students may study 2 or 4. It is only possible to study 1 course from each option block (A,B,C and D) as the subjects in each block are timetabled together. Please look at the option blocks and entry criteria carefully before completing an online application. Whilst it is possible to change options later, it is sensible to take time to carefully consider your choices now.
